We ate here on a very busy Friday night but couldn't fault the food or service. The ladies looking after us were very friendly and we enjoyed the suggestions made by them for our starters and mains. No room for deserts, but look forward to enjoying them on the next visit.

Homely, friendly atmosphere. Incredible selection of food, it was so difficult to choose. Went for lunch and dinner during a short visit to Staines. Well worth a visit.

Who'd have thought there would be a classy Italian restaurant at the undeveloped end of Staines High Street but there it was, virtually under the railway bridge. The welcome was warm and the food delicious. It's not cheap but the portions are decent. The antipasto misto was enough for three or four people and the garlic bread is pizza sized.... More

Popped into gondola for a quick bite to eat on our way out. Fast friendly service made this an excellent choice. Food was authentically Italian and wonderfully delicious.
